Annual reports and technical papers
Both Idaho and Oregon management agencies have already collected chinook salmon parr from the 1994 brood year from their natal streams for captive culture. Given the considerable uncertainty regarding this approach, it is essential that monitoring and evaluation be adequate to allow true adaptive management. Considerations include changes in life history parameters (e.g., age at return and the role of residual precocious male juveniles), inbreeding in the hatchery-wild system as a whole, short- and long-term effects on population fitness in natural habitat, maturation and gamete quality, and facility availability for handling multiple demes. In addition, facilities for captive rearing should be evaluated for disease incidence, water and emergency power supplies, and management performance. Optimum timing of capture of subjects for captive rearing should be considered.
Specific measureable objectives
HYPOTHESIS E.5: CAPTIVE CULTURE OF WILD SALMON DEMES UNDER BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES DOES NOT REDUCE FITNESS OF THESE DEMES.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
The many components of this study would require thoughtful planning.
